Man,30, hurt in al­ley­way gun at­tack

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News -

A MAN in his 30s has been shot in New­town­abbey.

He was blasted in the knee in the Bawn­more Park area on Fri­day night.

DI Conor McS­trav­ick said: “The vic­tim was ap­proached from be­hind by three males as he made his way along the al­ley­way at around 7.30pm.

“One of the males pro­duced a weapon and fired a shot at the vic­tim strik­ing him in the knee. The males then fled.

“The in­jured man was taken to hos­pi­tal.

“Whilst th­ese in­juries are not life threat­en­ing, this was a bru­tal at­tack. It is yet an­other ex­am­ple of how crim­i­nal groups seek to con­trol com­mu­ni­ties through fear and vi­o­lence.”
